Maple Syrup Glazed Pecans + DIY Cereal Bar

What you don’t see here, but still part of our morning: constant cocomelon in the background ruining ASMR. Munchkin told me that she doesn’t want pink playdough and then got mad at me for not making pink playdough. Sweet Pea got frustrated with glazed pecans sticking to her teeth…

But the lovely sweet moments you see in the vid were also part of the morning. The reality of motherhood is a box of sweet candies and bitter pills all at once.

The divided container we use for storing cereals and pecans are from this brand, but with a different design. Looks like the exact model is out of stock at the moment.

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups raw pecans
  • a pinch of salt


  1. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat.
  2. Add maple syrup and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
  3. Mix in pecans and salt.
  4. Lower heat to medium-low. Cook while frequently stirring until maple syrup crystallizes, turning to a powdery texture. It took me about 15 minutes.
  5. Spread glazed pecans on parchment paper until they are cooled down.
  6. Slip a cutting board under the parchment paper and cut the pecans into smaller pieces.
  7. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
